In response to the unprecedented bushfire crisis, Ritchies have donated bottled water, food, and $20,000 in aid to directly support those in need. Further to this Ritchies have set up a Bushfire Appeal throughout every Ritchies Supermarket and Liquor store Nationally allowing customers to donate directly to this cause. 100% of funds received will be contributed to the Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal currently underway.
Nationally IGA store owners have banded together and together with IGA have raised $310,000 that will be donated directly to those in need.
We are extremely proud of the efforts our customers and staff have made during this crisis. The show of community spirit has been amazing and something Australia should be proud of. Our thoughts are with all that have been affected, and on behalf of the entire Ritchies team we would like to pass on our greatest thanks to the volunteers and support staff doing everything they can to ensure the safety of our communities under threat.
To donate at any Ritchies Supermarket or Liquor Store:
> Advise your cashier you would like to donate to the Salvos Bushfire Appeal.
> Your cashier will add your contribution to your transaction.
> Your contribution will show on your receipt as "fire crisis contribution"
> 100% of all contributions made will be passed on to the Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal
Thank you to all of our staff, family and customers that have already made a donation of time, goods or cash.
